CES 30 Closing Odds and Results

luis felixClassic Entertainment and Sports (CES) 30 took place last night (August 14, 2015) at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island, and overall the card was interesting featuring a variety of quick stoppages, some wars of attrition and rather lackluster main event. Overall from a betting perspective, one favorite and four underdogs won based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. Here’s a quick recap for each fight. CES 30 Favorites That Won   In the light heavyweight division, TUF veteran Patrick Walsh bounced back into the win column with a unanimous decision victory over Jesse McElligott. Walsh was a -385 (Bet $385 to win $100) betting favorite while McElligott was +265 (Bet $100 to win $265). CES 30 Underdogs that Won In the main event of the evening, welterweight champion Julian Lane decided not to show up for the first four rounds of his rematch against Luis Felix en route to losing a unanimous decision. Felix outworked and outpaced Lane for the first four frames easily before Lane finally decided to fight in the fifth and final round, but it was too little, too late as he had his title taken from him by the more active Felix. Felix picked up a decision to claim his title as a -110 underdog while Lane failed to defend his crown as a -130 betting favorite. In the co-main event of the evening, featherweight Lenny Wheeler obliterated Matt Bessette, putting the local fighter away via brutal knockout in just 39 seconds. Bessette just had no answer for Wheeler’s aggression and power and he wilted once stung. Wheeler was a heavy +245 dog while Bessette failed to deliver as a -335 favorite. In a women’s featherweight contest, Peggy Morgan defeated Jesse Miele in a rather lackluster affair, winning two out of the three rounds on most judges’ scorecards to take a unanimous decision. Morgan closed as a +125 underdog while Miele was a -165 favorite. In a lightweight bout, Chip Moraza-Pollard pulled off a shocker by not just beating UFC veteran Dan Lauzon, but finishing him via second round TKO. Moraza-Pollard repeatedly got the better of Lauzon on the feet, eventually overwhelming him with combinations and the ref mercifully intervened when he dropped. Moraza-Pollard closed as a +350 underdog while Lauzon was -560.
